statira is right. Zoroastrianism is not Abrahamic. It Iranian and we do well to learn about it. Once you read about it you realize how much of Iranian soul is Zoroastiran. Our greatest festival NowRuz is 100% Zoroastrian. Our months are named after Yazdan. Charshanbeh Sori has Zoroastrian root. In fact that is why makes us Iranian. 

There is a lot of good stuff to read if you want to learn about it. There are books in both Persian and English. There are also some writings in Middle Persian. I strongly recommend reading the Gathas which are sacred hymns written by Zartosht himself. There are also other books both ancient and modern. 

I prefer the Persian writings. I want to learn about the living faith not some Western anthropological research. The real stuff is in Persian and here is a link to lots of good reading: 


We should all learn about this most wonderful of all faiths. It was this that made Persia great and its loss has been the single greatest blow to Iran. If we want a religion then this is it for us not Islam or any other faith.

 It was awesome. A great representative of the Westerner's spirit: adventurism, courage, curiosity, optimism. No wonder they are so much ahead of us!
